#5 Package names in listing


I have one of my non-critical machines automatically
applying package updates via cron-apt. So I get an
e-mail about what packages it updated and then I get my
aide report with all the files that have changed. I
thought it might be nice to see which packages changed
which files.

An output snippet might look like this:

changed: util-linux: /usr/bin/setsid
changed: util-linux: /usr/bin/namei
changed: util-linux: /usr/bin/setterm

Just a thought.

    Since aide is a cross platform tool, finding package names
    is non-trivial. For a debian system, it can be scripted
    using 'dpkg -S'. If someone writes such a script, we can put
    it in the contrib directory.
